CHATEAU ALLÉGRET
BORDEAUX ROUGE


Chateau-Allegret-Bordeaux-Rouge THE WINE & THE REGION
Grape Varietals: 40% Cabernet Sauvignon ; 60% Merlot

This beautiful Bordeaux wine reigns from the heart of the Entre-Deux-Mers region in Bordeaux at the beautiful winery of Chateau Allégret, situated on clay slopes and limestone.

Entre-Deux-Mers is a large sub-region of Bordeaux whose name translates literally to "between two seas", actually referring to the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers, which form the area’s southern and northern boundaries respectively. The prettiest of Bordeaux regions, it occupies a substantial area stretching from the city of Bordeaux in the west almost all the way to the farmland outside Bergerac in the east. Mostly fertile and green, rolling gently between 33 and 330 feet above sea level, the soils here are predominantly alluvial – sand and clay in varying proportions – which is to be expected given its name and location.

THE STYLE
Chateau Allégret presents a traditional expression of a classic Bordeaux wine. The blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot gives the wine bright and rich red fruits, such as black currants and fresh berries. Layered with the dry tannins and concentrated texture, while balanced with its acidity and minerality, this wine drinks beautifully from start to the structured finish.

PAIRINGS
Chateau Allégret Rouge pairs great with meats, such as lamb, beef, duck and even venison. With this wine’s elegance and versatility, it also allows creativity with the cuisine pairings, such as Tex-Mex, Mexican mole sauces, and even exotic spicy food, such as Asian Fusion dishes and Indian food. For a sweet tooth, dark chocolate is an indulgent treat with this wine.
